Cisco has a flaw that allows remote code execution on systems where its Unified Service Monitor (USM), Unified Operations Manager (UOM) and LAN Management Solution (LMS) software packages are in use.

The flaw allows an unauthenticated remote attacker to execute code on servers running the packages and suffers exposure when sending crafted packets to the server over port 9002.
